A Good Defense is a Strong...

We Gunnies have been content with the status quo for far too long.  Only when the Anti's make a direct attack on what we see as our current rights do we mobilize to defend those rights.  We cannot always play defense.  No military, team or cause can win long term without going on the attack.  If we always wait for the Anti's to make their move, the Anti's will be the only ones to score.  Each score for the Anti's further erodes our rights.  We need to go into attack mode.  We need to strive to overturn laws that restrict our natural rights at both the state and federal level.  The Anti's are launching the largest and most aggressive assault on human rights in recent American history.  We need to fight back by doing more than play defense.

When they submit Assault Weapons Ban legislation, we submit legislation to repeal the Gun Control Act of 1968.  When legislation is submitted to regulate magazine capacity, we move to remove silencers from the NFA (National Firearms Act) and amend The Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 to allow the sale of machine guns manufactured after 1986 to civilians.  Background checks on every firearm transaction? Only if passing that same background check is a requirement for all federal elected officials and employees to maintain employment, we repeal the Lautenberg Amendment, ensure that the rights of our military returning from war are not restricted due to treatment for PTSD, and that minimum sentences of at least 15 years w/o parole are applied to all violent gun related crimes.

The Anti's attack, we go on the defense.  We organize and defend.  We worry if this is going to be the time they succeed in turning us into felons with the stroke of a pen.  It is well past time we went on the offencive and started regaining ground lost over the last eight decades.

Yup.. The Roman Army issued a sword and a shield.
Going into battle with a shield and no sword probably won't win that battle.
